UK-EU future relationship debate
Simultaneously analysts have examined the theoretical and empirical content of the rationales given for rejection of the rational resource allocation models. In addition, some developing countries reversed their trade policies in important ways.
These reversals and the resulting changes in economic structure also provided stimulus for analysis of the link between trade policies and development. This is especially when the policy tries to provide benefits to everyone, without acknowledging the need of defining priorities. The EU trade policy on agricultural products, for example, contains provisions for domestic producers i.
Ideally, a uniform, ad-valorem and low tariff applied across the universe of products allows the collection of some revenue and provides some bargaining power in the negotiation of future FTAs.

Consequently, the new MFN tariff will need to be defined, in the short run, within the limits of the existing schedules. This, however, does not prevent the reduction of the existing tariff peaks in agriculture, food and textile products. Based on 10 digit tariff data.

Preferences for developing countries should be based on a simple two-tier system: Common rules of origin with low domestic content thresholds and flexible cumulation rules with other developing countries and UK FTA partners should be part of the system. However, as preferences for everyone means preferences for no one, the system for non-LDCs must be less generous than the one for LDCs. The offer should not include many key products for LDCs such as coffee, tea, sugar, cotton, tropical fruits and its processed products.
Other products intensive in the use of labour, such as some textiles, could also be excluded. The membership or access to the EU single market will have implications beyond the UK. Compliance of EU standards is assumed for any product originating in any of the member states. Flowers imported from Ethiopia into Holland, for example, can be distributed to UK retailers without any additional certification. This helps the seamless operation of the value chain involving UK retailers, Dutch traders and Ethiopian producers. The customs union secures that products can be traded within it without proving its origin.
If as part of the agreement with the EU, there is no standard harmonisation, nothing will prevent UK standards drifting away from EU ones. In this scenario producers in developing countries supplying both the UK and the EU will have to meet multiple standards; increasing production costs and reducing economies of scale. In principle, this is unlikely as even British producers, for which the EU is the largest export market, will be affected too.
However, even when standards may be similar, double certification costs would not be avoided when the products are exported to both the EU and the UK. In the new EU-UK trade agreement, it will be desirable that the mutual recognition of conformity assessment is extended to the products originated from developing countries. Some of these countries, especially some members of EPAs, have the UK as a major destination of their exports of goods i.

Kenya or services i. Although the UK may have interest in renegotiating these FTAs, they will not be in a high position in the priority list of partners to negotiate with, particularly in a moment where the negotiation resources will be extremely busy Lydgate et al, This suggests that a sort of transitional arrangement may be needed to avoid the disruption Rollo, This will be complicated when the UK will be in the process of accommodating its position at the WTO.
A WTO waiver may be complicated and it will take time. This means that the transitional provisions will need to depend more on diplomacy to prevent challenges by other WTO members, rather than an agreement. Thinking ahead, FTAs with developing countries need to be thought of as additional trade policy tools towards non-LDCs.

They should be available to any non-LDC wishing to improve their access with respect to the non-LDC preferential regime explained above or that want to introduce deep integration elements in their relationship with the UK. This agreement should be based on the non-full reciprocity of preferences i.
In this regard, the UK should aim for a single model of rules of origin in all its preferential regimes and FTAs. Trade policies in developing countries have been a focal point of analysis for international economists in the past several decades. A desire for rapid economic growth in developing countries raised many questions about the relationship between trade and growth. This chapter discusses that the policies adopted in many developing countries have often been widely at variance with those emanating from models of rational resource allocation and provided researchers with ample scope for analysis of their effects.
Simultaneously, analysts have examined the theoretical and empirical content of the rationales given for rejection of the rational resource allocation models. Some developing countries reversed their trade policies in important ways, often with dramatic results.
These reversals and the resulting changes in economic structure also provided stimulus for analysis of the link between trade policies and development. Thus, the subject matter usually regarded as comprising trade and development emanates largely out of the concerns and experience of developing countries.
